I've have these lumps...........

Dean B

Recommended Posts

Around my lips, i had one appear in Jan this year, just above my top lip, and it's like a clear skin lump, then a month later, i had one appear just under my bottom lip, and it was after after having a shave, and only the yesterday i had a shave, and another lump as come up on the other side of my bottom lip.

They are lumps, and it uspets me as it makes my lips look bigger and more rised.

I've been to the docs about these lumps, he said it could be herpes, i was shocked and uspet by this. He prescribed me with some Aciclova 800g tablets and told me to take 5 a day, ive done that for months now but no change, i saw him again a few months ago, he gave me the tablets again and acicolvir cream but still no change. So he reffered me to the Dermatoligist, who i saw last month, she studied my mouth and was foregin, so was hard to tell her how i feel. I told her about the lumps, but she pointed out somethin else, saying i had a herpes skin legsion. But it was not as noticable as these lumps, but she didnt say anything bout them.So she was no help. She gave me some Fudicin cream(something like that) But thats not improved anything. So im goin to my doc again this wk, but i doubt he can help me get rid of these lumps, ive had em since jan and they arent getting any better.

Also by my face cheeks, ive noticed i have lumps there too, and my skin has rised,and u can see these creases showing up, where the lumps are.

It's really upsetting me, i think abou it everyday, i tell my parents about it, and they say they cant see anything. As there clear lumps, but you can see that the skin has risen and it makes me lips look rised.

Can anyone tell me what ive got ? and offer me some advice on trying to fight this and get rid of these lumps.

Why not get blood type tested for HSV? Or culture a bump. That would narrow down the possibilities.

If you leave a doctor's appointment being so unsure of everything, you probably need to be more forceful with making them answer your questions. Your doctor works for you, not vice versa. Make another appointment. Writing down all your questions on paper before going helps too.

Bumps could be a lot of things.

kayla what do you mean the Valtrex made you crazy? what happened? and do you have a constant ob or new ones starting?

I do well with the Acyclovir but not in the beginning.

I don't know about street drugs but in the beginning the Acyclovir made me dizzy and lightheaded and nausious but after a week it went away completely. It was less bothersome to take at night before bed - which might be helpful to you? Oh and lots of water.

I know that in the beginning the dose was higher and once I went to suppressive it was reduced.

Can you take a smaller dose and only at night to get some relief? Have you considered switching to Acyclovir (Zovirax) instead? It is cheaper.

It completely got rid of my bumps and blisters etc and even some I didn't think were part of hsv. I also take almost all of the recommended vitamins and changed my diet.

      Hello "FeelingLost".... your fears and concerns are understandable but, nothing you've described regarding the sexual encounter would cause you to contract herpes.... further, your symptoms are not herpes related.  Best of all, your doctor is correct, your results don't show any herpes here.  You can relax.... definitely have your GP take a look at things and see what might be causing the symptoms but, again, none of them are typical herpes related.  I wish you the best in terms of talking to your wife about this encounter.... hopefully she will understand and you both can work through this amicably.  We all make mistakes.... be careful not to beat yourself up too hard over this.... you can become so racked with guilt that you start imagining physical symptoms.  Best of luck.... and take care..... come back to the site if you have questions.

      Hi (I’m really scared and feel really disappointed in myself and worried about my future), I had oral sex with a condom almost 3 weeks ago and a massage parlor. I also received a hand job at the same time prior to putting a condom on, also may have rubbed my penis on her back a little. Did not touch her genitals I don’t recall any sores on her back. After the event she handed me a pice of TP and after I took off the condom I wiped my penis head to clear away the excess ejaculation…this is where I suspect I got infected, she had just gone pee and wiped and maybe touched a sore or something and then I got it on my penis from the tp? Idk. I’m just flailing.   After this I’ve had discomfort on the skin below the head of my penis and 4 bumps for 2 weeks now, the bumps don’t seem to have changed in size. I also had frequent urination for about a week and have had dull pain in my groin on and off. I also have some pins and needles on the sides of my abdomen/trunk that get worse when I go out in the heat or get dehydrated. I’ve had a lot of trouble sleeping, likely due to guilt and shame and worry about the future.   so I got one test done at 10 days from the event (idk know if this can tell me anything… the doctor assured me it was 100% correct and I don’t have herpes. I was not physically examined). I got a full panel std. neg for everything. HSV-1 results: IgG 0.3 / HSV-2 IgG 0.9 hsv-1 IgM = 2.2 hsv-2 IgM = 3.0 (Reference V. Negative: Less than 9.0 Borderline: 9.0 to 11.0 Positive: Greater than 11.0) I have an appointment with my GP on Thursday, hoping he can help. Will likely go to a std testing service tomorrow to see if I can get in an antiviral proactively. Plan to get tested again this week.

      May 13 ( day I will never forget).. a guy I was dating and I drank way to much and decided to have anal sex. We did use protection however, not enough lube, wasn’t done correctly and it was painful. So bad that I yelled out and fell off the bed. Anyway, oral was also performed on me anal and vaginal. Flash forward to 3-4 days after that. I was in the most intense pain I had ever felt. I went to a gyn she tool one look and said it looks like herpes. She swabbed me . 2 days after that, yes it’s HSV1 . I was still in pain, irritated anal area and vaginal area and It was unbearable.  today, I still have irritation and itchy and when I pass a bowel i’m in pain and the itch is crazy.     When I first was diagnoses the gyn gave me valtrex which I did not take bc I was in so much pain I could not move for 2 days.  Groin lymphs were swollen I had fever , tired etc.  I am wondering if I had taken the valtrex would it have kinda liked stopped the virus in it’s tracks enough to reproduce? Do people see a correlation between no more outbreaks and immediate initial valtrex  use ? I am 43, I never thought this wound happen as I am not a promiscuous person, I hardly date and I always use protection when I do have intercouse , have yearly std tests. I’m just so sad that i’m at this point right now . I’m trying not to get depressed but this is making my body feel miserable. I’m an avid runner and biker and mom of two teens. I feel like my life as I knew is over. I want to feel better already.
